Hi all in the land of maple syrup and all things maple,

I recently purchased the RCM 6 coin set for 1991. Numista lists two varieties based on the reverse denticles.
https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces351.html
Without comparative images, I'm at a loss to know which variety I have. Can anyone provide a link to the image or post an image of the two varieties? Alternatively, do you know which variety was in the year set?

Thanks

PS I learnt the other day that food photographers put engine oil on pancakes instead of maple syrup as it looks better in the final photo.

Hey David. I'll put in my 2 cents worth, but always ready to be corrected. I don't think there is a difference in the denticles, the difference is in the narrow or wide rim. Numista needs a coma between rim and denticle. Note the 1993 is narrow rim beads. Beads don't get narrower. Rims do. Another coma needed.

You didn't say which set you got. Proof or PL. The Proof set should be the wide rim, the PL most likely narrow rim. And they both have denticles. That's how I read it.

Cheers Mate.

Edit, I missed the "6 coin set" earlier. So you have the PL/Uncirculated or the Specimen set.

I wonder if the wide denticles refers to the doubled variety.
This is from the Coins And Canada website...

@Loonie - Yes, not the Proof set. It was a set in the cellophane type wrapping so I guess the PL set. Pardon my ignorance, what does PL stand for Proof-like? Interesting that you mention PL as I recently requested some changes to Numista for some Canadian coins that were listed as Proof but weren't. When I checked out the RCM website they made no mention of Proof or Proof-like, nor were such words used on the packaging from RCM. Proof-like seems to have been applied to the coins by dealers. To me, they were simply UNC or BU. Do Canadians tend to call BU coins Proof-like?

Your comments do make sense and that's a real possibility. I find Numista a great site but I wish the refs wouldn't accept varieties without uploading accompanying images. They also have a scary acceptance that KM is God and if listed in KM it must be correct.

Steve - That's also a possibility. If only the refs enforced supply of comparative images when new varieties are requested.

And after a few cycles through the motor it can be used for treacle and then molasses food imagery!

Must admit, I do have a pension for maple syrup on bacon. I picked that up from the boarding students. They go though a few litres a week (imitation of course). Not sure where they got the idea from.

That's funny David. You know UNC-BU is correct. PL (proof like) sets stopped a while back, but the handle just stuck around.

I pulled my proof set and my circulation example. Definitely wide rim on the proof, and I have a good pic of it. Narrow rim on the circulation, but it's in a flip and is not being very photogenic. Maybe natural light will help later. So ya, I think you're looking at different rims, not denticles.
